It generates it all from a hefty 6-volt source and is easily fit into a tubular casing. Originally used as a fence charger, this circuit can be put to other uses such as: charging a whole row of lockers at school, a row of theater seats, or a metal bleacher set in the gym. More on this later. To build this, all you need is a GE-3 transistor, a 6.3-volt transformer, and a handful of spare parts from old radios. The ammount of shock you wish to generate is determined by the setting of potentiometer R1, a 15,000 ohm variable resistor. Hint: for maximum shock, set R1 at maximum! *************************************************************** Item * Description *************************************************************** C1 * 500uF, 10-WVDC electrolytic capacitor C2 * 2000uF, 15-WVDC electrolytic capacitor M1 * 6-VDC battery M2,M3 * Leads Q1 * GE-3 transistor (2n555 will also do) R1 * 15K potentiometer R2 * 160-ohm resistor S1 * Spst switch T1 * 6.3-VAC filament transformer (Triad F-14x or equiv.)
